After upgrading to Windows 8/10, users might find it difficult to get used to the new system where no start menu exists. Start Menu 8 can help users who are not willing to change their behaviors and bring back the classic start menu. Users can enjoy a familiar start menu again with just one click while other styles are also available. Start Menu 8 also offers an easy way to switch back to original style. What’s more, the background color of Start Menu changes along with desktop background.

  • Faster & Powerful File Search
  • Newly-released Start Menu 8 owns a more powerful search engine. With 20% faster search speed, it can provide search results in less time. Users can also easily find files needed with more accurate search results. Frequently or recently used files are also pinned to Start Menu for quick access.

  • Ad-free & Cleaner Start Menu
  • Advertisements may distract user attention while using a system start menu, sometimes even resulting in unwanted clicks. Start Menu 8 offers 100% clean and safe start menu to help users find apps and desired files without any disturbance.

  • Useful, Easy & Customized Settings
  • Users are able to customize settings via Start Menu 8. An assortment of icons has been collected for users to customize the Windows Start Button.

Upon install it looks impressive - any problems with it I can uninstall. With new software I always create a restore point before installing to ensure I can recover

Funny how the comments made so far, have rated this so poorly, not to mention I have never been a fan of the elements concept... our mobile phones act in a similar elements fashion.

One wonders what the next generation of Windows will bring to the table.

I use StartMenuX, which you featured in the oast. It is very similar to the Windows 7 Menu but has some very helpful additions, such as allowing the organization of programs into specific folders. Ones that we create, or rename existing ones, and can use icons for each folder. I was so impressed with it, that I bought the upgrades that come out every few years

Rick_S, Been using classic start menu for years; it's called classic shell now. I can move things from one folder to another, add new categories all the things you describe and as far as I know it's still free. You can change it to different versions to suit which ever win os you like best. About a year or two ago they sent me an update invite. I love it. Would take something quite spectacular to get me to change. Best of all it's free to use.

I installed this thing. It is still as ugly-looking and lacking function as I remember it to be.

I'm currently using Start MENU X. It gives it to me all on one screen, all at once. I'm not switching over for this dog's breakfast.

Seems obvious that it will revert to the default Windows. However, considering the software only costs $8, that is a pretty reasonable try before you buy.

I have used this since the time Windows 10 first came out a few years back. I like it.

What happens after the six month trial is over?

Reply   |   Comment by dadams  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+17)

dadams, It turns into the free version and nag's you to upgrade back to the paid Pro Version

Reply   |   Comment by Jim C  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+23)

dadams, i guess it goes to the free version

Jim C, so a classic-ish style start menu that nags... I'd prefer to get used to the new user interface and customise it to suit me and do without the nags and suggested app tiles. And they don't sell a 6 month license either and what are the odds it will try and push more of their PUP software on end users in the free edition... very likely on past exeprience with this company.
